MAMMOTH queues have been seen outside Colman’s award-winning fish and chip shop as Good Friday punters flock in for an Easter supper.
Colman’s has been serving fish suppers to hungry diners in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, for more than 100 years.
The family business has legions of loyal fans who were out in force for a Bank Holiday fish and chip fix today.
On Good Fridays the shop expects huge queues, reports Chronicle Live, and last year customers waited for 90 minutes.
Owner Richard Ord Sr said preparation starts early for the day, with more than double the normal amount of produce ordered.
He told Chronicle Live: “I’m afraid it’s all hands on deck on that day, it’s no days off allowed.
“We’ve got to look after customers. Because they’re willing to queue, we have to serve them as quickly and appreciatively as we can. We all do our best to make sure nobody is disappointed.”
He reassured hungry customers that in the 91 years his family has been serving Good Friday fish lovers, they’ve never run out.
